Steins;Gate 0 released on Steam earlier this year. As the sequel to one of the all-time essential visual novels, you couldn’t ask for better Christmas reading. Provided you’ve experienced the first game (play that one instead if you haven’t), it’s a worthy continuation of the clever time travel mechanics and the unforgettable characters. Arguably darker in tone than the original, it poses further philosophical quandaries that will give you something to stew over. On a personal note, it’s a franchise I associate with Christmas having first experienced the story around the holidays several years ago. Not to mention the images here…
Christmas is on the way! It’s time to adorn the tree with dazzling lights, bust out the obligatory TV specials, and gobble festive treats faster than the chef in your family can put them down. More importantly, it’s a precious opportunity to ditch your routine and bask in the company of those you hold dearest.
There might not be snow banks to leap into depending on your geographic coordinates, but video games under a blanket can provide fun with 100 per cent less mess (barring severe eggnog mishaps). It wouldn’t be Christmas at DDNet without our requisite list of games to keep you warm and cozy for the holidays. Each day until Christmas, we’ll highlight a title that’s perfect for passing the time, bonding with friends, or stuffing in your buddy’s stocking.
Join us on this 24 day adventure as we count down to the most wonderful time of the year. Merry Christmas!
